Ted Kennedy, who?
If Scott Brown really wants to be the first Republican Senator from Massachusetts since Edward Brooke (who was the kind of "light-skinned black man" favored by Harry Reid), then he should put this 1986 Cosmo centerfold of himself in every polling booth. Oh sure, voting would take a little longer but I think even his opponent Martha Coakley would throw her support behind him after staring at his strategically placed hand for a few minutes. At the very least, she would try to pull the lever.
Now, I'm not one of those cougar babes who chooses a candidate based on Matinee-idol good looks or the 1980's equivalent of six-pack abs, but a little beauty in the Senate couldn't hurt. I'm from New Jersey. I hope I die without ever seeing Frank Lautenberg's pubes. Ick. That is one magic carpet ride I don't ever want to take.
